I would like to let you all know about an autism speech and language therapy center called BY YOUR SIDE. Due to the success of their Burr Ridge, IL facility, BY YOUR SIDE is opening a second location in Schaumburg, IL. BY YOUR SIDE has a unique design that creates a comfortable home-like environment that includes a living room, kitchen, play room, art room, rec room and indoor playground. This enhances the teaching of social, behavioral and basic daily living skills. BY YOUR SIDE offers a number of programming options to address the varying needs of the autism spectrum.
The functional design of BY YOUR SIDE paired with a team of licensed professionals is dedicated to helping each individual become the best version of themselves, teaching them the skills to participate in activities of everyday life.
BY YOUR SIDE offers a number of programming options to address the varying needs of the autism spectrum. Frequency and intensity of the program is unique to each individual and determined by the therapy team which includes the family as an important member of that team.
The ABA Therapy program, ABA and verbal behavior, is intended for children or young adults who have behaviors that interfere with learning. The program focuses on teaching an array of functional skills to help increase language, play and socialization within the demands of everyday life.
The Language Builder program is created to teach language concepts, speech production, basic reading skills, communication skills, social interactions and interactive play skills to allow the individual to have foundational knowledge to cope and communicate in relevant activities of everyday life.
The Augmentative Communication program is intended for children and young adults who currently have access to communication devices but are not realizing the full potential of the device. The objective is to teach the child to navigate through routine activities using the device and to teach the family effective and efficient management of the device.
The Social Circles program is intended for children and young adults who have adequate language skills but have difficulty navigating through conversation and social interactions. It addresses a variety of subjects including social anxiety, conversation agility, verbal and non-verbal responses and negotiating with peers.
The Occupational Therapy program is created to address sensory and motor needs that interfere with an individual’s ability to interact with their environment for the purpose of building relationships and learning. The occupational therapist works closely with other therapy team members to create a comprehensive therapy plan that combines sensory processing, attention, fine motor, self-help and adaptive play and leisure skills.
